During the holidays, librarians should take precautions to avoid offending their patrons and coworkers with politically incorrect season's greetings. It is best to avoid anything that could be considered even remotely religious ("Merry Christmas!" "Happy Hanukkah!) and any politically-charged, potentially inflammatory generic substitutes ("Happy holiday!" "Season's greetings!"). The safest bet is to hide under the reference desk and avoid human contact until January.
